BAY LAKE, Fla. – Walt Disney World announced on Wednesday that its new Toy Story themed family-style restaurant, Roundup Rodeo BBQ, will officially open on March 23.

The restaurant, currently under construction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, brings to life the stories, characters and heart from the award-winning Disney Pixar “Toy Story” films. It is a place where guests shrink to the size of a toy and feel like they have stepped into a clever, whimsical world filled with beloved playthings.
